On a given day this store has the best selection of any I’ve ever been to. Their bomber selection is just ridiculous. At one point when I was there they had 5 beers from Cantillon. No one else in the entire Panhandle gets anywhere near that. Nate the beer guy is very knowledgeable and the rest of the staff are very helpful. If you are near Destin this is a must visit store.

Jesus christ what a fucken mess. Attached to their bar/restaurant The Craft Bar. Entrance to the shop is kind of hidden. As far as beer is concerned, it’s mostly just piled up around the store. They have a great selection, local, national, and international, but there’s no organization. A small fraction of the beer is refrigerated. No employee interaction while confusedly browsing the beer. Overall employees were very stand-offish. Prices are decent. I’m only visiting the area, and I’ve had a better experience at the local Winn Dixie. I guess if you’re local and looking to score rare brewkis, this is the place to go for better or worse.

The go to place for beer on the Emerald Coast. Randy and Nate are the extremely knowledgeable beer geeks. If this Wine World doesn’t have it, it usually can’t be found in the area. Right next door is the outstanding Craft Bar w/ crowler system, win/win.

A great bottle shop in the area. An excellent selection, for the area, of beers that line the West side of the store. You can create your own 6-pack and don’t forget to check inside the cooler, sometimes good beers get tucked away inside and forgotten. There is also a little bistro attached that serves fine cheeses and food as well as pints. Employees are usually extremely helpful and friendly.

Out of the 3 Chan’s that I’ve been too this is far and away the best. Lots of high abv gems no available in ga. Not friendly but not rude staff. Just didn’t seem to want to talk beer at all. Will be hitting this place up if within a 30 minute drive.

Chose this place while in Destin area for a week based on reviews. While the beer selection is the best in the area, finding fresh offerings, especially of "hoppy" brews was a challenge. The place may be good for its area, but overall, below average. Worth stopping in if in area, but by no means would I drive an hour to patronize them. Also, a bit pricey.

Very cool place. Nice layout. Easy to get in and out of the parking lot. Restrooms are very clean and stylish. Customer service is knowledgable and friendly. An excellent selection of craft brews: warm, cold, singles, packs. Some rare imports outside of usual distribution. Exciting to see what you might run across. Ample selection of in distribution hot beers: Sucks, Mephistopheles, etc. More meads, cuvées, and geuzes than I’ve ever seen. Prices are fair. There’s a wine bar where seating is available for sampling cheeses and wines. A cigar humidor is located on the opposite side of the wine bar.

Visited for the first time 12/19/2013 or so. A little hard to find if you don’t know where you’re going, but that’s not their fault. Typical wine/liquor store ambiance. Well-lit, friendly workers, various signs and posters on the wall, etc. The staff was helpful and friendly, commented on my selections, etc.

I was pleasantly surprised by their selection. I am consistently surprised by places in Destin every time I visit for orchestra gigs. I will be making a stop here as I go by every time I visit for sure.

This is the best beer store in the area. Store is a wine store with a small section of beer. Staff was enthusiastic about beer and mead. A nice feature is they have a wine bar attached that carries 5 draft craft beers and 1 B Nektar mead.

I took the drive to this place while I was staying at Eglin AFB and I am glad I did. The first impression of this store gives you the idea that it’s like any other bottle shop, but then you soon discover they have a tap system to try several beers and fill growlers. Their beer selection was amazing. The owner is from Atlanta and tries to get a lot of beers that you don’t normally find in Florida. The rarity of beers was impressive to me and I loved the selection of Terrapin and even Redlight Redlight Zwanze beers. The owner was extremely helpful and seemed truly passionate about the beers in his store. $200 later, I walked out of this place and I cannot wait to stop by there again.
